Saturday, February 06, 2010 I work out in the gym with Xeno: Olympic Gold and Silver medalist in the men's single skull

I first encountered Xeno via the Usenet Newsgroup newsgroup on the Internet in 1995.

He asked if anyone wanted help coaching/rowing or whatever. I was coaching a freshman's Eight and Xeno gave me advice and insight into his training.

If I remember correctly he was pulling 1,40 splits on the Concept B for an hour at a heart rate of 160.

Xeno said then "The most important thing for a freshmen's Eight is that the rowers learn to fight."

Good advice.
